I’ve been wanting to try Minx myself but I swear y’all…my cheapness will be the death of me. Minx nails can be pretty costly ranging anywhere from $35-$75. And they don’t even last THAT long. But as with anything that’s crazy in price, it doesn’t take long for a budget-friendly alternative to hit the scenes.
Okay, whose idea was this? I mean, it’s genius. For $5.99 we can get the Minx nail look without the Minx nail price. Oh. yes. But does it work? Let me preface this by saying, I do not regularly wear glue-on nails. And not because I don’t like them but because my nail beds are beyond long. It’s very rare when a set can fit ALL 10 of my nails. I was hoping this set would be different. The directions were easy enough but I had the toughest time. I got glue everywhere! On my fingertips and even on the nail. What a fail, B. I know, I know. But eventually I got them on.
POW is right. That’s a whole bunch of bling. Are you LOLing at my middle finger nail and it’s gangsta lean? Yeah…I messed up on that one.
Still, I’m impressed! I loved how the nails looked. I was unable to comfortably wear all 10 nails though because a good 4 were shorter than my nail bed. But had they fit, I would have rocked them for days. I ended up soaking them in acetone a day later. It was a bit of struggle to get them to pop off; which I guess is a good thing if you’re looking for long-wear use. You’ll love these if you have average size nail beds and are desirous of some extra funk in your nail care routine.
Think you’ll snag ‘em?
